The book also includes links to external websites - including the author's own Ireland's Hidden Gems website - where you get fuller descriptions of some of the attractions. There are also lots of drop-dead gorgeous colour photos, and these alone would be enough to tempt you to go to Ireland, if you weren't planning to already.
The book divides Ireland up into its four counties. Beginning with Leinster, the book starts with the top ten attractions in Dublin. They're hardly Hidden Gems, but having been to Dublin a few times before I know she's chosen the best of its attractions.
Beyond Dublin, though, the guide does include some of Ireland's lesser-known sites, and with lots of history and fun writing which let you know the author really has seen and done all these things. Her enthusiasm comes over, and you get a real good sense of what it's like to see and do the things she's described.
The book doesn't have a lot of practical information, such as prices and opening hours, and for those you really need a web connection or to carry a bigger print guidebook with you, like one from Lonely Planet or Rough Guides. It does have some hotel, restaurant, bar, excursion and shopping recommendations, and does what a print guide can't do - gives you links to send you direct to the website to get all the up-to-date practical info you need.
Where I think the guide is really good is as a planning tool, for your vacation in Ireland. No holiday will be long enough to include everything that Ireland has to offer, but you can use this guide to help plan your trip and decide which of the very many attractions listed you most want to see. And at the ridiculously cheap price, it's a bargain.
